ONLINE – Michigan Mondays! Virtual Phone Bank for Nicole Breadon (MI HD-43) (aka Virtual Canvassing)
July 20, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Monday, repeating until August 3, 2020
Join us for a virtual phone bank with the Nicole Breadon (MI HD-43) campaign. Please sign up by Sunday evening, so we have time to give Nicole’s campaign the number of attendees.
Michigan’s 16 Electoral College votes are critical to winning the White House in 2020. Plus, Michigan Democrats could take back the state’s House of Representatives from Republicans for the first time since 2010.
Flip a Michigan State House seat, and maximize your impact up and down the ballot!
Plus, a blue State House means overturning gerrymandering in Michigan, addressing environmental issues and groundwater contamination, and increasing funding for Michigan schools, healthcare, and infrastructure—as well as many other important issues.
Why Phone Bank?
- After door-to-door canvassing, phone banking is the most effective way to connect with voters, clean voter lists, and do voter identification.
- Canvassing is on hold during the pandemic, so calling is even more important.
- This strategy provides the opportunity for personal, real-time conversations. It allows us to make real-time connections with voters, ask questions, and collect valuable information for campaigns.
- Phone banking helps identify supporters, recruit volunteers, deliver yard signs, get out the vote, clean up phone lists, and more.
- Allows campaigns and state Democratic parties gather critical data and target their resources.
- It’s critical for getting out the vote and reaching rural voters.
- Builds community.
- It is practical and cost effective—anyone can phone bank from home without having to travel.
Do Not Worry If You Are New to Phone Banking
- Nicole’s campaign has a short training at the beginning of each session. Dawn will go over everything we need to know, including the script and how to make calls (Dawn’s a great trainer!)
- You’ll need a charged phone and a laptop, computer, or tablet to make calls
- Organizers will be online during the calls via Zoom call, in case you have any questions or need help.
